Nicole Mitsuuchi


Licensed Therapist, LCSW


My approach to treating OCD is gentle, nurturing, guiding, and redirecting. Outside of work, I love hot yoga, sunset chasing, playing with my corgi, and growing my indoor jungle (a.k.a. my plants).

ERP essentially is short-term distress for lifelong change.

Get to know Nicole Mitsuuchi

My passion has always been to help others. Growing up, I was always the therapist friend who enjoyed listening and supporting. My personality and social skills make me a natural and authentic therapist. Additionally, I’ve always struggled with my own mental health. I’ve gone to multiple therapists in the past and have been able to experience what it’s like being in the member’s shoes. Unfortunately, I had a bad experience with my first therapist. Since then, I’ve always strived to be an ethical and competent therapist and ensure a supportive and nurturing environment.

I decided to specialize in OCD because of someone I was treating for anxiety and OCD. Although we were making some progress with their anxiety, it wasn’t their main issue. This fueled my curiosity to expand my knowledge of OCD.

I also specialize in treating anxiety, depression, bipolar, parent-child interaction therapy, attachment disorders, and trauma.

Be prepared to be challenged to face your fears and triggers in a safe space. We will collaborate to determine how we will approach your treatment, but the overall goal is to be able to tolerate uncertainty. Try to remember that ERP essentially is short-term distress for lifelong change.

I understand some things may feel scary or embarrassing to bring up in therapy. I encourage you to express any hesitancy in bringing something up, so I can reassure you this is a safe and non-judgmental space.

NOCD therapists are trained by our world-renowned clinical leadership team.

I just feel very heard by Nicole shes great


Dec 06, 2023

I was one of those people who couldn’t understand how ERP could possibly work. The idea of running towards your fears and welcoming the uncomfortableness terrified me. But I became tired of not living my life. I am grateful to the universe for putting Nicole onto my path. She has been incredibly supportive during this journey. A journey that is filled with anxiety, but Nicole reminds me of my strength and encourages me to keep pushing. She loves celebrating your wins with you! In just a few sessions, I could see and feel the change and Nicole is a big part of that. She’s gentle, actively listening to me, informative, and genuinely cares for her patients. If you’re unsure if it’s time to face your OCD, just do it. The first step is difficult but Nicole guided me through it and I couldn’t be happier that I’m taking back my life.
